In 2017 15 healthy and substantial Lime trees were delivered to the old council depot o Barnby Dun Road. They remained there until early 2017 and appeared to have been forgotten.
Early in 2018 FoSP volunteers asked the council what the trees were for and could Sandall park benefit from them if they were not needed. DMBC stated that the trees were destined for a project in Tickhill. The trees remained in the depot throughout 2018.
In February and march 2019 more requests were made to the Council about the trees. Then at the beginning of April 2019 to the horror of our volunteers, they discovered that all 15 of the Lime trees the trees had been sawn off at the base.
The Council claim that the trees would not have survived being planted – we don’t believe them!
